Stop Bullying Pocketbook
Bullying - Repeated intimidation intentionally carried out by a more powerful person or group in order to cause physical and/or emotional hurtA . It happens in every type of school and in all classes and cultures; it's a problem for thousands of children and increasing numbers of teachers, and it's the reason several young people a year commit suicide. In recent years, a new insidious form of bullying has emerged: cyber bullying. It's the fastest-growing type of bullying, leaving victims vulnerable 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This second edition of the Stop Bullying Pocketbook is about what to do to prevent and stop all forms of bullying in schools. This extensively illustrated book is full of practical suggestions for both teachers and students. For teachers there are in-service training exercises; advice to give parents; practical tips about creating an environment that deters bullies; what to say to bullies and victims and an action plan for creating a bully-free school. A range of awareness-raising ideas for pupils can be readily incorporated into teaching plans, while authoritative chapters on what is known about bullying and on understanding bullies and victims place everything in context. Though firmly advocating adult intervention, the book is equally clear that children and young people need strategies they can use themselves. Numerous ideas and exercises are provided for use with pupils to help them avoid or deflect bullying. These include showing them how to communicate differently; how to say (and shout) no; how to 'fog' insults and what to do about cyber bullying. There are also several simple but effective ideas for interactive work exploring bullying through drama, poetry, story and discussion. Michele Elliott, child psychologist and founder of anti-bullying charity Kidscape, has an OBE for services to children. She draws on 40 years' experience teaching and running Kidscape, has chaired Home Office and WHO Committees and worked with the DCSF, Childline and NSPCC.

Accelerated Learning Pocketbook
Teachers who are using accelerated learning methods in their classrooms are finding pupils more motivated, engaged and successful. This new edition of the Accelerated Learning Pocketbook draws together in a handy pocket-size format all of the tried and tested techniques that are revolutionising teaching. This book is about how to teach in a way that maximises your pupils' chances of reaching their potential. It contains hints and tips on getting students ready to learn; ideas for establishing a working environment conducive to effective learning; teaching strategies; and a useful self-evaluation framework that allows teachers to assess and record where they are on the accelerated learning continuum and to see what needs to be done to move to the next level. In structure, design and how it is written, this Pocketbook is itself based on accelerated learning principles. The author shows readers how to model the principles as they read and become accelerated learners themselves. Brin Best has written extensively about education and has fulfilled a variety of roles within schools and at LA level ranging from classroom teacher to consultant specialising in school improvement. His doctoral research is on effective teaching and learning.

Teacher Leadership: The New Foundations of Teacher Education : A Reader
Over the past two decades, numerous textbooks have been published on teacher leadership; however, this is the only volume that provides a definitive overview of the scholarship and writing being done in the field of teacher leadership. This book introduces the reader to the scholarship of over 35 authors, and thus, becomes an essential tool needed to guide any meaningful discussion of the changing roles and responsibilities of teachers. As an important component of revisioned teacher education programs and most current state standards for teacher licensure, teacher leadership is emerging as a central theme in all foundations of education classes. This book acknowledges the important role of teacher leadership in the reform of schools and discusses teacher leadership within the context of teachers' work. Organized around six key topics, the book explores the many facets of teacher leadership and examines the impact of teacher leadership on school culture, student learning, professional learning communities and 21st century schools. Additional references and website links are also provided. Teacher Leadership: The New Foundations of Teacher Education - a Reader is intended for undergraduate and graduate education students.

Whatever Happened to Progressivism?: The Demise of Child-centred Education in Modern Britain
In this professorial lecture Roy Lowe highlights important research on the debate on teaching in Britain in the post-Second World War era. He begins by reflecting on recent trends in the study of history of education and goes on to argue the need for research which is socially aware and sensitive to the political and social trends that underlie classroom practice. He also suggests that historians of education have something to say about the wider issues confronting the global community at this time. This lecture shows how stereotypes have developed around ways we perceive developments in teaching since 1944 and then suggests the need for a new look at the debate on the school curriculum. Important new research evidence is used to provide fresh insights into the debate on how children should be taught and what they should be taught in the years following the Second World War.
